How to use Mah Leng Pu

2) Whenever you travel abroad for business, worship Mah Leng Pu with incense or fragrance, and recite prayers. Recite the katha to Mah Leng Pu 7 times, and repeat this sentence, “Please protect me and help me achieve success in business”, 3 times.
3) If you have a shop, place Mah Leng Pu on a plate, and make an offering of white flowers and a small cup of honey on the same plate. Tell him; “Today I offer sweet honey, please accept my humble offering and eat your fill. Please bring wealth to me”. Following which, place the Mah Leng Pu into water, recite the katha one time, and spray the water throughout your shop and on your products. Place the Mah Leng Pu back onto the plate after the process. Offer fresh honey every day.

This Thai incancation (mixed with katha) translates as “Jungle fever (Malaria) don’t come to me, evil spirits stay away from me, and wherever I travel in the jungle, I will be safe until I reach my destination.”
